Featured Maker: Enticing Tweed from The Green Deer

We’re excited to announce that MASScotSHWOP will mark the beginning of an exciting visual merchandising programme with local creatives.  We will be showcasing curated window displays by fabulous artists and crafters in our window, beginning November 14th.  To start us off, here are some stylish, sophisticated accessories to show your love of all things Scottish.

Previously Yana K Crafts, The Green Deer is an Edinburgh based maker specialising in producing handmade accessories in a fabulous and high quality tweed and tartan.  Yana Kolmogorova‘s funky and functional purses mix vibrant wool in dynamic colour combinations and patterns, ranging from £15-£47.  Here’s a glimpse of her Etsy Shop:


Tasteful, comforting and bursting with personality, these Harris Tweed washbags, cosmetic bags, purses and pencil cases offer a little something different for the suave student, penny saver, lipstick enthusiast or well groomed gentleman in your life.

Come to our event and shop a range of Green Deer items, or enter our Etsy Raffle for a chance to win this gorgeous small makeup bag from The Green Deer – toothbrush size with a waterproof interior and so handy for travelling!


This particular case is made from new, limited edition Harris Tweed woven by one individual weaver.  All Yana’s make-up bags and wash-bags have water-resistant linings. Coin purses and pencil cases are lined with a linen effect cotton fabric.  The quality of craftsmanship and care in each of these pieces is evident down to the last detail.

A double threat, Yana is also a keen artist – and, as well as her purses, MASScot are displaying her drawings of landscapes and gorgeous dogs.  The personality in these little drawings has been bringing out the same “awwww”s in the MASScot office as if they had been real life puppies.  If you’d like Yana to capture your pet’s essence, she is currently taking commissions: custom drawings from a photo start from £30 per commission for A5 size, or £50 for A4.  Here’s a charming little Shih Tzu:


…Look at its little face.
